Corporate Retreats

Host your team's retreat at Cressland

Are you are planning a company corporate retreat or team building event off-site? Cressland is ideally suited to provide the perfect venue for 5/6 people because it has all the space and facilities you need. It is located in the beautiful, peaceful village of Kersey in Suffolk, right next to The Splash. The 15th century Grade II* house has many original quirky features and provides the perfect get-away for colleagues to leave the stress of the office behind. 

Eating out is easy because Cressland is only 100m from the local pub which caters for lunch, snacks and dinner. However if fitness is your thing, Kersey Mill Gym and Fitness Centre is a short walk away (less than 2km). It offers full use of the gym, various classes and 1-1 instructor sessions upon request.


Cressland is a favourite with corporate guests because of its proximity and easy access from London, Cambridge, The Midlands (and of course anywhere within East Anglia) by road, rail or air.

From London Liverpool Street to Colchester station the journey is 50 mins.

There are taxis outside Colchester station and Kersey is just 25 minutes away.

Plus it’s only 43 miles away from Stansted Airport. 


We provide unlimited Wi-Fi and the large dining table comfortably seats 8 people.

Cressland is perfect for meetings, with plenty of room for a white board (provided on request).

There are also four bedrooms to accommodate a small group.

There are a number of catering companies we can recommend who will provide buffet food or a full sit-down meal, served for you in the cottage.

Nearby, The Bell Inn has a large private dining area which can be pre-booked for a breakfast/lunch meeting or meal. There are more places to eat out locally as well.

What our guests say


With hotel quality bedding, towels, dressing gowns, The White Company products, fresh flowers in the rooms, luxury welcome basket, including a bottle of wine and homemade cake, we offer the luxury of a hotel, for a fraction of the cost.

So that leaves you with more budget to spend on activities or entertainment!
